Seen the trailer for this. Was the full film ever released? Can't find it anywhere.

Nope. And won't be. Let's just say the filmer and subject decided not to progress with the project.

Possible thread: "great lost climbing films" (of actual climbs, not "Rich Simpson or Si O Connor FA videos!).  My vote would be for the Northumbria project - I remember seeing fantastic footage around 10 years ago in Wildtrak - lots of Andy Earl FAs etc (I also saw him throw an absolute paddy falling off the finish of Leviathon / Lothlorian in front of the camera crew).  Every few months, for around 3-4 years,  the producer would say the film was being finalised.... then nothing.

I seem to recall they did an evening where they showed most of the footage and did a bit of a talk but I don't think anything will come of it now. What about the swiss vid with persons flashes of the great star hunt etc ? will any of that see the light of day ?
Goddamn that's a pretty fucking good milkshake

What sort of idiot would make a teaser for a film way before it was even close to being finished? :look:  :whistle:

Seems like a bit of a strange idea, like someone telling you the same joke at the end of every sentence.

I don't know Mike but I hope you finish your next one soon!

Firstly because I love sea cliffs and can't wait to watch it and secondly because then hopefully you will sort out a download of Stonnis as I really want to watch that again!

Only just come across your teaser - and what a teaser it is! Looks brilliant, I can't wait either

Edit: It's here: in case anyone else hasn't seen it yet either

That's a shame. Stone Love is still pretty epic.

Hocking's film of Caff soloing 100 Lakeland extremes in a day. An incredible day and a lot of effort put in getting the footage. Couldn't be arsed to edit it...

BMC TV is a video sharing channel, like vimeo or youtube, not a production company.

But you never know, maybe the BMC could be persuaded to fund some editing...
